Giant of a Day, Pt. 2

March 5, 2007

I hate to do this, but I’m gonna have to wrap up the Shephelah post with just a few pics.

We did some spelunking in some caves at Moreshet-Gath, the home town of Micah the prophet. The caves are from the period of the Jewish revolts against Rome. I’d forgotten how much fun spelunking was. Peter, Lester, Michell, and I are showing off our headlamps in this pic.

We returned to the Elah Valley to pick out some smooth stones. We also acted out the David and Goliath scene. In this pic, David (Peter) is above to cut off Goliath’s (PC) head.

We ended our day at Gath, and we raced up the tel just in time to catch a beautiful sunset. Just thinking about it brings a smile to my face.

The Shephelah was our last one-day Land and Bible field trip, but the fun is nowhere near being over. Tomorrow, we leave on a four-day field trip to the Negev, where we will study the patriarchs, snorkel in the Red Sea, float in the Dead Sea, climb Masada, and have the best time of our lives–enjoying our Creator, his work in history, and our friends in four more glorious days of IBEX.
